Sir Paul McCartney has topped The Sunday Times Rich List of musicians with a net worth of £730 million.
The 72-year-old Beatles legend's worth has increased by an estimated £20 million since last year thanks to a significant boost from his wife Nancy Shevell's £150 million stake in her family's American trucking business.
For the third year running, singer/songwriter Adele, 26, has topped the list for young music millionaires under the age of 30 in Britain and Ireland, with an estimated fortune of £50 million, while the four members of One Direction plus former bandmate Zayn Malik share the second spot with an estimated wealth of £25 million each.
One of the fastest rising new young stars is Sam Smith, who has already amassed £12 million since rising to fame in late 2012 and his debut album 'In The Lonely Hour' became a worldwide hit.
